on the republican line. caller: thank you for taking my call. the so-called reduction in medicare -- is this information or misinformation? are they really going to reduce the amount of money in medicare to pay for this plan? also, the public option. how come they do not want to fight for that? it seems to me that it would be a good way to go. if people are insuring -- purchasing insurance, they are responsible for reading the policy and numbing their coverage. it is just like taking out a loan. if you sign on the dotted line, you are responsible because it is a contract. i think republicans are just fear-mongering, trying to kill the bill simply because of the input of lobbyists. host: thank you for the call. guest: public comment on the medicare question. the pieces in the legislation that would reduce cost under medicare are comprised of a number of components that have been discussed by legislative advisory commissions in the past, such as the medicare advisory council, which advises congress on issues of payment in medicare. issues have also been raised by the congressional b

reviews and investigations of medicare and medicaid fraud. some have resulted in prosecutions and other in new program integrity functions to prevent health care fraud. he has been the inspector general since september 2004 and is the senior official responsible for audits, evaluations, investigations, and general law enforcement for all hhs projects. it is an honor to introduce my colleague, dan levinson. [applause] >> thank you very much. i cannot pass up an opportunity to say hello, good morning, and welcome you here as early as possible. this is such an important event for our office of inspector general because fighting fraud is what we are all about. on behalf of the 1500 dedicated professionals of our office, welcome to what looks to be a very interesting and what i undoubtedly believe will be very productive day as we gather throughout these breakout sessions to drill down on some of the most important issues concerning health-care integrity that our programs face. again, i think you will be hearing this from others as well, when one of every three americans depends upon an effi
of this, tax breaks for small business, extending the life of medicare. more assistance to seniors for prescription drugs. a cap on out of pocket expenses. help for people with pre-existing conditions. he's saying let's get back to it. if you look at the polling in "the washington post" yesterday on the massachusetts race,s the clear. people don't want us to walk away from health care. they want us to address their concerns with the program. they want brown to come and work with us and not be obstructionist. that was very clear in the polling. i suggest that the. party look that poll as well. their policies were viewed more dimly than democratic crying o together. we're working to pass this on behalf of the american people, who are going to feel greater and greater burden from the health care costs if we don't step up and deal with it. >> you're looking forward to pass this. the president looked like he was trying to reduce the scale. are you talking -- what do you think about the idea -- i have a question here. that speaker pelosi and majority leader reid are cooking pup you coul
problems with this proposal, this is they're going to go on medicare earlier, which will cost money. they won't be paying taxes 'cause they're not working. but the -- this has budgetary problems way more than what's been analyzed. broadly speaking again, to your point, if you take tarp money and make it a magic slush fund and pay people to join the army $100,000, that would lower the unemployment rate. >> it's going to cost you more money to take a job away from someone who is around that age than it is to keep them in their job. these people need this job to make rent. they are not dead weight. so this notion of retiring them early so that some young person who can live at home and be taken care of by his parents is better for our economy is crazy. >> last word. >> it's a voluntary program. it's not a matter of getting rid of dead wood. it's only people who are willing and ready to leave the work force. those people who are ready to leave ought to be given an incentive so that perhaps a younger worker who is going to be paying into the system can have a shot. >> kucinich is over 60
medicare has issued a warning. what is that warning? is anyone listening? steve moore joins us live. steve is the senior economic writer for the "wall street journal" editorial page. center for medicare and medicaid service has a warning what is it? >> this bill is going to cost more than expected. this bill was intended to cut the costs of the health insurance system so we could all afford greater access to health care. what this medicare actuary said it is going to what they call ben the cost curve up to state cost will rise over time they won't fall down. that's what mr. obama said. they project over the next 10 years that the increase in the cost of medicare is going to be 200 billion dollars that a big number twice the size of the california budget. >> greta: is that in contrast to what the congressional budget office said? >> a higher number. >> greta: now we've got two very different numbers. did they use different methodology at arriving at the numbers? >> medicare they think the cost are going to accelerate more. remember there's two parallel programs there's medicare they didn't

, that is not the way to do it. what we should do is what medicare did in 1965. it was a christmas tree in the beginning. that is how they got the legislation passed. after that, then they started putting restrictions. in fact, we must be doing a good job, because now everyone is -- scared that medicare pays so little because it is too stingy in its payment. we did put cost controls and later. medicare does have its financial problems. let me end by saying, i think the public option would have had the potential to control costs, because you could sell insurance, it would garner market share. that could allow for the consolidated purchasing power i talked about to reduce costs which would bring more buyers there. reading the newspapers, it does not look like we will have a public option. that would be the one way in which i could see a health care reform having potential for controlling costs. on a positive note, it is not about costs or dead. if we move towards universal coverage, we are going to be creating a system that will be more malleable to the changes we want to see with regard to cost containme
. >> okay. what if we froze the topline of medicare medicare, medicaid, social security, and the very same discretionary spending that the president announced for tonight's speech for the same time period? how much would that save? >> i can't think of the categories off hand but it would've saved a great deal of money. i think the challenge is to decide what the top line cap on medicare spending, what does that mean to medicare beneficiaries, who is that will not get paid in an amount that would've been paid without that cap. >> okay. let's say that you reduce the benefits to wealthy americans who did pay that money into social security, means tested the payouts and did it that way. >> so on social security side, with picking sort of a dollar amount up front it's easier to change those rules then want to do this sort of thing as you suggest. exactly how much you'd save depends on just what thresholds you picked and how the testing worked. >> mr. chairman, thanks a million.

insurance plans pay under part d of medicare for prescription drugs. they are taking advantage of their purchasing power. and we're relying on private insurers committee are' competition in part d of medicare, it isn't as effective as the v.a. which does take advantage of its market power. let me just talk for a moment on a private insurance. we rely on private insurance here. it's for-profit insurance. i think it leads to much higher health care costs. private insurers, obviously by definition, they have to make a profit. in addition to that they engage in marketing, they also engage in what we call medical understood writing, they have to hire a lot of actuaries to make sure that they're not taking on people who are too expensive. these are all very costly things. so that raises the price of private insurance. in addition, as i said, they don't have as much bargaining power so they also can't keep their prices low by taking advantage of the consolidated power that i'm talking about. so you might ask, why do we allow private insurance to have quasi-monopoly and the answer is t
't know the exact number but clearly with the body of medicare of 55 and over we are going to pick up two or 3 million more. now you've got the program operated by the opm and you have a bye in there of several million people. there's a provision most people haven't focused on which is a state can set up a separate program for people, government-run between 133% of poverty and 300% of poverty and any number of states will essentially do that. finally in all probability the exchanges are going to be run by the states. so, as that system comes forward you've got a bigger medicare, bigger medicaid, the fixed rates other components which are going to have negotiated rates. the bad news is going to take four years, five years to get this up and operating so i'm not sure there's going to be a lot of changes. but i think we have to start thinking how do we bring those together? it may be that medicare and medicaid are dictating rates for the groups that are negotiated. >> if we take that as a presumption we are going to see something built i would like you to respond what we were talking about h
for this? cutting half a trillion dollars out of medicare and you are going to be taxing people at a time they cannot afford it. we can do better. we can go back to the drawing board. it will not take 15 years. not on my watch. i will make it a priority to have coverage that states can rely on and have the flexibility. not a one-size-fits-all for the country and the hurting states. >> i am going to turn to you and you can -- all of you have talked about the economy. voters put jobs at the top of their list. everyone is worried about 10% unemployment. it is also true that this terrible economic situation workers find themselves in comes at the end of a lost decade for american workers. there has been nationwide, no net job growth since december, 1999 and middle class families when adjusted for inflation have not seen their incomes rise. what are your plans not only short term but what is the answer to the long-term challenge for jobs for americans? >> if i can no to that the congressional budget office says within 10 years that health care plan will be deficit neutral. one of the reasons w
